This system is known as the Loreno ML-116 , according to its front panel, manual, and carton; or it’s known as the Loreno ML-116 , according to Samsung’s Website. The Website also lists similar-sounding models, the Loreno ML-116 and ML-116, with smaller speakers. This 7.1-channel system uses towers as both front and side surround speakers and comes in a box that’s almost as tall as a fridge. Assembling and wiring the system will tax no one’s patience or dexterity.
The towers come in three pieces: the driver array, a same-sized blank pedestal, and a heavy base. Threading the already-attached cable from the pedestal through the base is easy. The driver piece plops onto the pedestal with electrical contacts in place. Bolt the three pieces together, and you’re done. The other speakers require no assembly. The supplied speaker cable’s soldered tips fit easily into tabbed spring-loaded wire clips on the speakers and sub.
At the receiver end, the cables are wired into color-coded plugs that naturally find their way into matching color-coded jacks on the Blu-receiver. For wall mounting, keyholes are molded into the plastic enclosures of the center and surrounds.
